(#1104, #892, #1065, #979).

update (#1098).
   * Optimise screen display speed on bell sound series (#1102, ~#865).
   * Italic emojis.
   * Notify child process via iotcl also when scaling window with font 
size (xterm 368).
   * Bracketed paste mode: configurable splitting by line.
   * New user-definable functions no-scroll, toggle-no-scroll, 
scroll-mode, toggle-scroll-mode.
   * Management of the ScrollLock LED for consistence with actual status 
of special scroll features.

Rendering
   * Speedup of width detection for auto-narrowing for certain 
characters (#1065, #979, #892).
   * Prevent artefacts of large-size underscore cursor (CSI 4 SP q CSI ?

   * Avoid duplicate font initialisation (~#1113).
   * Earlier window display by later setup of drag-and-drop and tabbar
